Work With Me

Dominating the Stroller Run.

This post is a long time coming.  Last fall, I decided to master the art of stroller running. Sometimes the stroller/dog run which is even more of an art. This picture was taken 10 miles into a 20 mile stroller run when Marshall was around 3.5 months old, 3 weeks before my first post baby marathon. Listening … more »

I ran a lot this week.

I’m training for the Indy Women’s Half Marathon because, well I don’t really know how to handle life if I’m not training for something. I ran it last year, about 10 weeks after having Marshall. It was hard then, but it will be hard in a much different way this year. I don’t have a … more »

Biking, Running, Mother’s Daying

This weekend I did my first real outside bike ride of IM 70.3 training. I’ve rode around a bit outside since the weather got nice, but not a real training ride. Those have all been inside. We went to Crown Point to visit Glenn’s family for Mother’s Day and his parents agreed to watch Marshall … more »

Triathlon training- MUNCIE 70.3

I’m on week 5 of Half Ironman training. It is a lot of working out, but I really am enjoying it. While I sometimes really want to get off the bike, because 25 miles at the gym gets super boring… I am glad for the break from running 6 days a week. To me, the biking … more »

Stop and Go.

Today I had a tempo run scheduled. I go to the gym pretty much everyday Monday-Friday between 8:30am-10:30am, (before I had a baby and worked normal hours- I always said this would be my dream time to get a workout in. I remind myself of this almost everyday when I head to the gym… remember … more »

Rock the Relay Recap

Last weekend I ran Rock the Relay, which was a benefit for Back on My Feet Indy. When we heard the race was going to happen, Glenn and I planned on running it as a two person team. We’ve ran on a relay together a couple of times, but not a two person relay which … more »

Baby with the Wild Hair.

8 Months now.  Wearing clothes that are too small. #momfail Marshall is as busy and crazy as ever. I suspect he might be walking by 9 months. I don’t think he’s strong enough yet, but he’s doing a lot of one handed standing. He’s gonna have to strengthen that core some more to stand and … more »

The last 20. Hungover & Tired.

I was nervous and anxious about this damn 20 miler for like two weeks. That’s the way I operate. It’s a tough workout and it was my last HUGE effort before tapertown. I’ve put a lot of really great workouts in and wanted to make sure I killed this last big run.  I had heavy miles … more »

Quick Stroller 10

Last week was all about slow, recovery miles. Recovery weeks make me tired. I know they are important but they can seriously mess with your confidence. I had 10 on the schedule today. All of my runs this week are 10 except for the hellacious 20 on Saturday, and I’ll probably do some non-scheduled easy miles … more »

Marshall 7 Month Update

He is ready to run guys. Picking out his favorite gel at BlueMile- he went for some random powerbar gel.  Doesn’t he know mom & dad use Hammer? Looking all hip and stuff in his homemade hat. (Thanks for the cute new vest from Grandma and Grandpa Hein) He is eating realish foods these days: … more »
